A rare example of the Ferrari 250 GTO has been involved in a crash in central France, an incident that has been described as the most expensive single car crash of all time.

The model was under the control of U.S. Businessman and owner Chrtistopher Cox when another car reportedly attempted to overtake it before they collided causing serious injuries for passengers in both cars.

While Christopher Cox appears fairly unscathed, his wife reportedly broke her leg in the incident while two passengers in the second car were take to the local hospital.

Mr Cox was in France to take part in the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Ferrari 250 GTO which saw an expensive parade of the legendary models open this year's Le Mans Classic ( see picture above).

Just 39 examples of the 250 GTO were ever built and their value continues to soar. Recently, American automotive collector Craig McCaw bought a model originally made for Stirling Moss for a price of $35 million (€28m / £23m).
